PeptiDream Inc. and Ipsen partner to discover, evaluate, potentially develop and launch therapeutic peptides to treat serious medical conditions in areas of therapeutic focus for Ipsen.

The research collaboration will combine PeptiDream’s proprietary peptide library with Ipsen’s expertise in peptide drug discovery and pharmaceutical R&D. The financial terms of the agreement are not disclosed. In exchange for world-wide rights to the therapeutic peptides resulting from the collaboration, Ipsen will make an upfront payment to PeptiDream and pay R&D and commercialization costs. PeptiDream will receive royalties on worldwide sales; or have the right to opt-in at predefined stages to support Japan development costs for royalty free commercial rights in that territory. In the latter circumstance, PeptiDream would also forego royalty income for ex-Japan sales.

“Our partnership with Ipsen to discover novel therapeutic peptides for serious debilitating disease reinforces the status of PeptiDream as a major force in therapeutic peptide discovery in the pharmaceutical industry worldwide,” said Patrick Reid, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer and Head of PeptiDream's discovery programs.

“Ipsen and PeptiDream now enter into a research collaboration to discover novel highly-selective peptides targeting specific serious disease using the synergies of skills and competencies between both companies. We believe the Ipsen – PeptiDream agreement implements our philosophy to apply innovation for future patient care,” stated Dr. Claude Bertrand, Executive Vice president R&D, Chief Scientific Officer at Ipsen.
